Lebron James statement on Brelo verdict

Lebron James is asking for peaceful protest in the wake of the Michael Brelo verdict in Cleveland. Read his comments below.

"Violence is not the answer, and it's all about trying to find a solution," he said. "In any case, anything that goes on in our world, the only people we should be worried about is the families that's lost loved ones. You can't get them back. You can never get them back. We should worry about the families and how they're doing and things of that nature."

"Sports in general, no matter what city it is, something that's going through a city that's very dramatic, traumatizing or anything of that case, I think sports is one of the biggest healers in helping a city out," James said.

"Sports just does something to people, either if you're a player, if you're a fan, if you just have something that has anything to do with that city, you just feel a certain way about rooting for a team that you love that can get your mind off some of the hardships that may be going on throughout your life or in that particular time period. It just does that."
